President Trump Now Says That Wasn't Him on Access Hollywood Tape

Ivanka Trump

US President Donald Trump does not plan to campaign for a Republican candidate who is embroiled in allegations of child sex abuse, the White House says.

Republican candidate for U.S. Senate Judge Roy Moore listens to a question during a news conference on November 16 in Birmingham, Alabama.

The White House official told The Associated Press that Trump would not travel to Alabama on Moore's behalf.




Trump yesterday once again plunged himself into the race, declaring in a pair of tweets - without mentioning Moore by name - that electing Moore's Democratic opponent, Doug Jones, would "be a disaster".

Trump has defended Moore, who is accused of a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl when he was 32 and assaulting or pursuing contact with eight other teenage girls. Moore denied the allegations and claimed the story was planted by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). Most Alabama party leaders back Moore, including Gov. Kay Ivey, who has said she won't move the special election date. Kelly is now White House chief of staff. "Wilson added. "'Well I know he's a cannibal, but at least he's not a Democrat' is the kind of thing that's going to wear thin outside of the narrow partisan lane Alabama represents". "If this were a military operation, the left flank and the right flank are heavily guarded", Busby told The Washington Post.

Trump's words could be a boost to the Moore camp, since Democrats' hopes in the race partly depend upon peeling away Republican support from Moore in the deeply red state.
